Taste on Melrose
A unique and special gem!From start to finish the staff made my friend's birthday dinner amazingly special! The management came to offer a special happy birthday to our table and asked if everything was to our liking and what she could do to make it even more memorable. The food was outstanding and they even sent over a birthday cupcake with a candle. Our server brought a special birthday card as well and her impecable service made it a perfect evening.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat friendly restaurantGreat friendly restaurant where you can actually hear people speak.

Rory & Bobbi6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good but food qualityAlways good but food quality seems to be getting worse. I love this little spot but its so crowded now it seems that they are just whipping out the food and not caring as much for the detail... I still love it but I hope they don't forget it's about the food.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove to taste Taste. We travelLove to taste Taste. We travel 300 miles from out of state and try to make a stop on all our trips to West Hollywood. The food is consistently quality, service is pleasing. Highly recommend!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently great foodWe've come to Taste on Melrose many times for both lunch and dinner. Always great service and food. We always enjoy sitting outside and people watch with martinis5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTaste is a great little find!This was our first time at Taste and it was a very pleasant surprise. We started with the Calamari Fritti - really good w/ chipotle aioli. My husband had the steak frites and loved it (although the steak was a bit off temperature - asked for medium and it was medium well as they bring it in a sizzling skillet it probably overcooked). I had the Kobe Meatballs w/ linguini in Pomodoro sauce - fantastic! For dessert we opted to try both the blackberry sorbet (very good) and the parfait with vanilla gelato, devils food cake, chantilly cream and caramelized bananas. It was more of a deconstructed sundae and in the future I will most likely try something else. While a little louder than I would like, it was really good & the service was great.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemI didn't know what to expect when making this reservation and the min we got there I knew it was the right decision :) I made the reservation for 5 for a Mothers Day Brunch and it was SO yummy!

Great table location. Fantastic server, Jericho. Her descriptions of the dishes and preparation were literary in voice. I am diabetic.

Our server, Nina, was extraordinary.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTaste on Melrose is a keeper!I've said it before, and I tell everyone I know: Taste on Melrose is as close as you can get to a sure bet when you need a solution to the "Where shall we brunch/lunch/dine?" The menu has more than something for everyone. Food is carefully prepared, nicely presented and delicious. Service is friendly and casual-yet-competent. I always feel we are well taken care of at Taste - even when it's busy. The drinks are generous. And menu prices are sane, when the location and quality could command far more. It's our go-to spot with out-of-town guests. Never fails. They just do it right. Thanks Taste.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place! Great bloodyLove this place!
